Help!
My Compaq Deskpro seems to be taking short naps.  The clock is not keeping up, and while working, the mouse momentarily freezes, I cannot open or close programs, and while typing, the words stop printing on the monitor and will suddenly catch up.  These lapses last from a few seconds to a minute.
I had a professional add a CD RW unit last week, otherwise, nothing has changed.

Hi,

Did this start happening right after the cdrw was installed or was this problem there before it was installed?

I found a Microsoft article that has this behavior for Compaq Deskpro running Win95 but they claim is was fixed in Win98!
Slow Keyboard Response on Some Windows 95-Based Computers

I have a feeling you have some program running in the background causing this.
Try a Diagnotics Mode Startup to see if the problem persists and then let me know.

Seriously, what type of scanner do you have?

These are symptoms of certain scanner power saving modes!

Seriously, I don't have a scanner hooked up.
Unless a scanner is something other than an add-on machine that "photos" documents into your computer.
What I have noticed is that the longer my computer is turned on, the worse it gets.  After I re-start the computer, there are no problems.  If I leave it on overnight, the next day I have all the symptoms I described earlier.

Hi,

Have you tried the "Diagnotics Startup" like I suggested above?

I'm not sure what a "Diagnotic Startup" is.  I searched for it, but found nothing.  What I did do is perform a "scan disc" for everything.  It took a long time because the scan quit several times saying that open programs were shutting down the scan.  I closed everything, including the small icons on the bottom right of the task bar, but got the same messages.  The scan finally finished, and I have yet to have the "napping" problem, but in the past it got worse as time went on.
Does this help you?
